    do people say “bad neighborhood” for cities next to all-white high schools where the boys are getting high every day and raping girls? do they even say “bad neighborhood” for cities with large kkk meetings? or is bad neighborhood a strictly anti-black code?

    People who aren’t Black don’t understand why us telling ourselves “Black is beautiful ” is so important. For years and years we’ve been told we’re not beautiful, that we don’t fit “society’s standards” of beauty. And people still try to tell us this whether it’s silently or out loud. That’s why it’s important. We have to remind each other that we’re beautiful despite ignorant things people may say about us.

    BOND is a tiny touch module. It can be a pendant or a bracelet but it comes in pairs. You keep one and you give one to a friend. When you touch it, your friend feels it. No matter where they are on the planet. We don’t do tweets, we do tickles.

    gonna put it on my dick

    THAT IS NOT THE INTENDED USE SIR

    This is actually so cool because some people wear bracelets and necklaces and things as comfort items. I used to wear a necklace from my grandma to remind me of her and I would touch the pendant on it when I was feeling down or stressed. So imagine (if she were still alive), every time I did that she would know I was thinking of her, drawing strength from her.

    And then imagine poking it and the other person feels it and pokes back and you end up in a real life facebook poke war.

    I would send messages in morse code

    magine you and your best friend have one. When the friend dies, he/she is buried with the bracelet. A couple weeks later, you feel someone touch your wrist.

    Well this escalated from cool tech to perverted hilarity to something heartfelt then finally something out a creepypasta

    your life is worth living even if you’re “not doing anything”

    your life is worth living even if you are “letting life pass you by”

    your life is worth living even if you stay in bed all day every day watching netflix

    you don’t have to be big, beloved, important, beautiful, wealthy or famous

    there is dignity in just being

    it is ok to be

    you merely have to be

    90s-mermaid:

    A woman who is in the process of learning to know, accept and love herself on all levels, Mind Body and Spirit. A woman who, because she focuses on personal growth and self awareness, experiences a life, increasingly filled with peace, love, joy, passion and fun. A woman that understands that she has unlimited capacity to make her life anything she wants. A woman who is inspired to give to those around her because of her sense of gratitude and abundance.
